*El Desperado & Taichi defeated Fuego & Ryusuke Taguchi.

The semi finals take place on 11/1 with The Young Bucks vs. Taichi & El Desperado and 11/2 where ReDRagon take on Forever Hooligans.

After pinning IWGP Junior heavyweight champion Taguchi, Taichi looks to be in line for the next title shot.
